WRITINGS AND TEACHINGS

KENNETH WESTHUES
Professor Emeritus
University of Waterloo, Canada

Updated with quotes for April 2021:

Classic:
For man is happy only in His aspiration to the heights; When he attains his goal, he cools And longs for other distant flights.
— Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931), Lebanese-American poet.

 

Direct:
Freedom is not so much a condition people live in as a process they enact, with every new assault they make on the way things are.
First Sociology, p. 444.

Garden moment for April 2021:

Epimedium or Bishop's Hat is among the first nonbulbous perennials to bloom each spring. Species and cultivars abound. More popular in Japan than North America, this delicate shade-lover is slow to get established, but tough and mostly evergreen.
